Warren County Sheriff’s Office investigators are asking for the public’s help in solving a recent break-in at a local business.

A burglar alarm was activated about 5:13 a.m. on Saturday at the Tobacco Plus store at 90 Riverton Commons Drive, said Lt. Phillip Henry.

Responding deputies found the glass front door shattered and called for investigators.

Security footage showed one person broke out the door with a baseball bat, and then three people entered the store, stealing numerous cartons of cigarettes as well as Black & Mild cigars, Henry said.

The robbers wore dark clothing and covered their faces, revealing very little of their bodies. Investigators are not able to positively determine much about the people who broke into the store.

“We are hoping maybe they have been speaking to people or people might recognize build and the clothing,” Henry said.

There is no vehicle description.

The case is under investigation by Brad Pugh of the Sheriff’s Office. Contact him at 540-635-4128 or through the Warren County Sheriff’s office website using the tip information tab.
